Halloween Happenings  

Only treats await at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, taking place select nights from Aug. 16 – Nov. 1. During the specially ticketed event, Magic Kingdom Park will transform into a wondrous one-of-a-kind celebration. Don't miss the brand-new, Halloween fireworks spectacular that will take guests along on a tick-or-treating adventure, where Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. There will be spooky fun for everyone, including devilish Halloween décor, and enchanting entertainment such as a parade, character greetings, and trick-or-treating throughout the park.

Nightmares rule the darkness at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, select nights between Sept. 6 – Nov. 2. This year, guests will experience 10 chilling mazes, including all-new Netflix’s Stranger Things and Nightingales: Blood Pit haunted houses. Guess will also encounter five scare zones, live entertainment, and more. 

Weekends from Sept. 22 - Oct. 28, enjoy an ocean of Halloween fun for the whole family at SeaWorld Orlando’s Halloween Spooktacular. During this daytime event, meet everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends and whimsical sea creatures, enjoy spectacularly spooky live shows, and trick-or-treat throughout the park. 

For friendly Halloween hijinks, head to LEGOLAND Florida Resort for Brick or Treat, select nights Oct. 5 - 27. This spooky, and a little kooky, event features exclusive entertainment, LEGO photo ops, and the popular Brick-or-Treat Trail where boys and ghouls can fill their bags with treats. 

During Halloween season, pack your costume for a ghoulish good time at Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center during Goblins & Giggles Getaway Weekends. During select weekends in October, the resort will offer plenty of Halloween fun and frights for the whole family. 

Say a final goodbye at Mortem Manor in Old Town. The year-round haunted attraction features a haunted house and Last Ride— a burial simulator. This unique horror experience puts guests in a coffin and seals them into total darkness as they hear, feel, and smell the terror of being buried alive. 

Step into the past for hair-raising tales at Kissimmee Ghost & History Tours. Experience the locations and stories of murder, mayhem, and mystery throughout historic downtown Kissimmee. 


Festive Fun   

Feast on culinary creations from more than 30 global food and beverage marketplaces at the 24th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. From Aug. 29 - Nov. 23, experience seminars, tasting events, and scrumptious meals from around the globe.
